Pierce Brosnan Back in Action as The November Man

About the Movie:  Peter Devereaux (Pierce Brosnan) is an extremely dangerous and highly trained ex-CIA agent, who is lured out of quiet retirement on a very personal mission. He must protect valuable witness, Alice Fournier, (Olga Kurylenko) who could expose the truth behind a decades old conspiracy. He soon discovers this assignment makes him a target of his former friend and CIA protégé David Mason (Luke Bracey). With growing suspicions of a mole in the agency, there is no one Devereaux can trust, no rules and no holds barred.  Based on Bill Granger's novel "There are No Spies" from the bestselling November Man book series, The November Man is the ultimate cat and mouse game set in the world of international espionage.
This spy thriller has all the elements to keep you on the edge of your seat.  CIA, spies, war ciminals, car chases, and an interesting plot with only mildly complicated twists and turns that will keep you guessing, but not lose you.  Brosnan, my all-time favorite Bond, is back in action and delivers a great performance as Devereaux, a much tougher, grittier version of the charming 007.  Beware that this film is long on violence and debuts a much darker side of Brosnan.  The action kept my pulse racing and I had to squeeze my eyes shut several times as I am a light weight when it comes to anticipating the outcome of nerve-wracking scenes.  The action continues at lightning speed as I’m left to wonder “wait, is she going to make it?” 
Newcomer Bracey and Kurylenko both give solid performances.  Kurylenko, who I thought was just going to be eye candy, surprised me with the depth she gave to her character.  She is an outstanding actress, but, wow, she is beautiful.  So gorgeous that when they flash her character’s driver’s license, I think they could have made her less perfect so that her license doesn’t looks as if it belongs to a super model rather than a case worker.  It won’t be in my top ten, but I did enjoy watching one of my favorite actors showcase his super spy moves in this action packed thriller.           
Rated R, 108 minutes running time, opens August 27th.
